leaders to the white house from 6:00 o'clock on a sunday night. and harry reid is there, the house leader, the relations between and among the democrats are so not solved, that harry reid, is a chief of staff, makes a presentation on the deal if reid is trying to work out with the republicans. in the course of doing that, david corn says to the president of the united states, in the oval office is in his house, i am disappointed in this white house and you for not having a fallback plan. literally, again. somebody reading of the president in the oval office for not having a plan. after the meeting, harry reid said to his chief of staff, stood up to him, he needed to hear it. no one was telling him. think about it for a moment. what is the second most powerful democrat in washington have to use his chief of staff as a lever to send a message to the president of the united states? i was talking to somebody from amazon.com the other day. as you may know, they take books and they divide them as red states and blue states. most of the books selling in red states, republican state, blue state,
reduction, one of the great antidote between harry reid on obama and nancy pelosi -- obama is going on at some length. nancy pelosi leans over and hit the button and starts a conversation with harry reid. that illustrates everything. it illustrates a lack of trust that simply isn't there. they see him as an empty seat. he hasn't been able to deliver on anything. conservatives tend to think that they see obama as an evil genius, which i think he is an ordinary man trying to make things the best that he can. but progressives are deeply disappointed in them. they had a much bigger agenda. they needed a personality like an lbj to make that happen. hillary might have had a personality. she probably does, actually. this is someone who is solitary and bookish and those are adjectives that describe him is unlikely to retreat to a private office in the white house. his own staff doesn't know how to decide on three issues. >> host: let's go back to the first chapters. you talk about the enormous influence of women over obama? >> guest: first of all, it sounds like it is somehow a bad thing to
was effectively a referendum on obamacare. and yet this president and nancy pelosi and harry reid rammed it through. >> the question -- if you were elected, do you want these benefits that hundreds of thousands of texans now have -- to do what been taken away? >> that is not exactly right. i support as a dividend health care reform. >> the lot of the land is in the books. do you want to have it taken away? >> you cannot talk about half without the other half. the other half -- i think health care reform should follow if you principals. number one, it should expand competition in the marketplace. number two, it should empower patients and disempower government bureaucrats. let me give you three specific reforms -- one, allow people to purchase health insurance across state lines. that would create a true 50- state national marketplace for health insurance. for example, talking about children under 26 being on the apparent policy. if we get a true national marketplace for of insurance, those parents who wanted to purchase that coverage to purchase set. we would not need the government mand
for mitt romney. does he think he has to sit down with harry reid? i think the same for president obama. i think republicans are underestimating how strong obama will be if he is reelected. hold allhink he could the republicans against an obama version of a budget deal. i think that have more leverage over members are around campaign finance issues and other things. i think obama -- even if the democrats don't control all of congress, he would have some leverage to go around leadership. people say bipartisanship, but there are two forms of bipartisanship. one is the leadership negotiant and the other is -- the premise of both of those is, there has to be personal relationships to develop before that can occur. the ambassador pointed out that governor romney will have those talents. i think president obama knows he has them, he will just have to now demonstrate the more. >> so the reality is this, we are a few short weeks away from the real work starting. be a moment ofl real clarity after the election. we will all wake up the next morning and some will be happy and some will be sad. then t
lower when harry reid took to the floor of the u.s. senate and accused governor romney of not paying taxes for ten years. last week, nancy pelosi implied that there was no security at the embassy in libya was because the republicans had employed cuts in that area. they understand the economy is not helpful to them. i would remind the governor that the republican congress has spent many, many job creating bills to the democratically controlled senate and harry reid has refused to let them get to voted on. >> governor romney, the consensus is he came out ahead in the debates. do you think he's going to be able to sustain that momentum? has he energized the base? >> he's clearly energized the base. i was just in denver speaking to a conservative group there. i've been doing some women for romney events. people are clearly very fired up. what they saw was a fantastic debate performance by governor romney. what they also saw was a contrast between someone and governor romney who understand the fooacts and could relate th to every day people's lives. president obama, it wasn't just that hi
's visit to nevada prior to that, harry reid academy the presidential nominee on his religion. this is what reid said. he coming to a state where there is a lot of members of the church. they understand that he is not the face of mormonism. my first thought would be, some do you think you are the face of mormonism? i'm sure many people in the church hope not. without being disrespectful, it's not the intent of mitt romney to bring his own faith into this presidential election other than to affirm it's very important to him. i think he evidences that by what he does. when he released tax information 30% of his income away, biggest part to his church, i admire people that back up their beliefs with what they actually do. his particular faith is not the same as mine but i want people who practice what they preach. i would love to see people in office and frankly people who wanted credibility with me to demonstrate that what they stand for on sunday is also what they stand for the rest of the week. one way we find that out is how they invest even their resources. now, if you are going to bring
think he is to sit down with harry reid or does he think he has to go sit down with joe manchin and mark warner and eight other, and i think the same for president obama. i think, i think republicans are underestimate how strong obama will be if he is reelected. and i don't believe boehner if he is a 15 vote margin and as i don't think he can hold all the republicans against an obama version, for example, but they're still in of moderate republicans. the leadership is stronger than it used to be. i think they have more leverage over mbs, partly because of campaign finance issues and other things. but having said that, i think obama going to some lamar alexander's of the world, there are some the covens in the house, even if the democrats don't control both houses of congress he would have some leverage to go around leadership is leadership -- that was the case of boehner i suspect. he will feel he is obliged to cut a deal with obama in 2013 is romney lost. people said bipartisanship there are two forms of abortion she. one is leadership negotiation, the other is -- [inaudible] spent with
pelosi and harry reid rammed it through. >> the question -- if you were elected, do you want these benefits that hundreds of thousands of texans now have -- do you want them taken away? >> that is not exactly right. i support as a dividend health -- a significant health care reform. >> the lot of the land is in the books. do you want to have it taken away? >> you cannot talk about half without the other half. the other half -- i think health care reform should follow if you principals. number one, it should expand competition in the marketplace. number two, it should empower patients and disempower government bureaucrats. let me give you three specific reforms -- number one, allow people to purchase health insurance across state lines. that would create a true 50- state national marketplace for health insurance. for example, talking about children under 26 being on the apparent policy. -- on their parent's policies. if we get a true national marketplace for of insurance, those parents who wanted to purchase that coverage to purchase set. we would not need the government manda

pulling out militarily. this is all happening because harry reid, president obama, and all geniuses gave us the idea that we should have a timetable on a war. so we started this in 2006 putting the pressure on president bush. a timetable? there is no such thing as a timetable for war. we should leave afghanistan when people there in that part of the world stop planning to come here and kill us. we should be this until that is offer. we node a military presence there. a lot of what is happening in afghanistan because karzai has no place to go --. >>neil: do you think al qaeda is restrengthening? >>guest: they do not see american troops in afghanistan and see as dwindling number of our troops in afghanistan and that area of the world. what they going to do? come out of hiding and do what they will do. >>neil: a problem you would mention tonight? >>guest: i know 65 percent of the membership want us out of there, but this is where it take being a president and a leader we cannot be out of there. an american president has to stand up and explain this to the american people the we have to be t
together and harry reid hasn't passed one. socce so, i think with the debate, that paul ryan is more prepared than the administration. >> jamie: doug, what impact does the jobs report of the last week. i've heard it interpreted 42 different ways, for democrats, how can they use it and what do they need to overcome in the latest numbers? >> at the very least, jamie, the jobs report says that the argument that mitt romney was making about the economy and president obama has to be at least some point attenuated, meaning that bottom line, with unemployment going below 8% for the first time since the start of the administration in '09, the obama administration can make the case that some of their policies have produced some results. given the debate results on tuesday night, this is a potential life saver, if not a game changer for president obama. >> jamie: i suppose it has to continue and. >> yeah. >> jamie: let me ask you, angela, what's the important number, that it's below 8 or that 23 million people are out of work? >> exactly. 23 million people are still out of work, and you have 4
, harry reid -- i work for the people of massachusetts. i am named the least partisan senator and united states senate. >> it is striking the youth support governor running for president, i assume. >> as i said, when it comes to dealing with the economic issues, absolutely. >> you would be a reliable ally? >> it depends on with the issue is. >> on his economic plan. you said there's no one better. >> i also would like to read the bill. because i do. a lot of people to not to read the bills. i want to vote. i am a reliable vote for the bill. that is evidenced by my voting record. >> it is striking that we look to your campaign ads, is president obama that you see touting your work. we could not find any instance with you with governor romney having made any campaign appearances with him. there is an appearance york distancing yourself from governor romney to appeal to voters, specifically here in massachusetts. being " -- being too close to him may be a problem. [applause] >> as you know, in the second- most bipartisan member. i take pride in that. i was also proud to stand with him when
. that being said, it's amazing how much flack he's getting when harry reid made a similar comment about a presidential candidate saying that he had not paid his taxes. so of course i'm referring to governor romney. he said i have absolutely no proof of it but everyone took it as the gospel because it was senator reid saying it. so i think there's a double standard there. [ overlapping speakers ] >> the fact of the matter he's never released his taxes. he had an opportunity to put the real information out there. >> senator reid said he had no proof that this was the case. that's what he said. [ overlapping speakers ] >> i'm saying here's the point. jack welch said he didn't have the resources. he had no proof, either. and i'm saying it's equally irresponsible for him to say it just as it was irresponsible for harry reid to say it. >> one second. morris, i'll get you on. molly, folks from the romney camp, are they publicly staying above the fray on this matter but privately are they not doing anything to discourage this talk? >> i don't think this makes romney look good at all to have thi
, we have about 30 seconds. >> nancy pelosi and harry reid. harry hopes to stay in majority, nancy wants to be leader. she was on wolf blitzer's show yesterday. i hope they're not leaders, but you cannot govern through half truths, innuendo and half-baked charges. harry reid stood in the well of the senate and charged that mitt romney had not paid taxes for ten years. demonstrably false. and nancy pelosi said when security in libya came up, she threw an innuendo that the congress didn't give all the money they asked for. another grenade tossed in the middle. you cannot govern through half truth and innuendo. that's what harry reid and nancy pelosi seem to major on. >> there we got it. that's our panel. that's our unsolicited advice for the afternoon. thanks very much for being with us. we look forward to the debate tonight. >>> margaret, thanks very much. ahead we're going to hear from two of the top advocates for mitt romney and barack obama setting the stage for tonight's presidential debate. and mitt romney has no backer as passionate about his potential than his wife, ann. just
be an interesting question for romney. does he think he has to sit down with harry reid? or to get to sit with mark warner another senate. and i think the same for president obama. i think republicans have a say are underestimating how strong obama would be if he is reelected. and i don't believe boehner can hold up is the 15th of march. i don't think he can hold all the republicans. they are stronger than it used to be. a figure of more leverage present because of campaign finance issues and other things, but having said that, obama going to the senate and there are some equivalents in the house. even if the democrats don't control all of congress, you would have leverage to go around leadership. in the case of boehner, suspect he would mind. he will feel he is obliged to cut a deal with a bomb and 2013 if romney has lost. but i think people say bipartisanship come up with various leadership negotiation. the other is picking off the members against the wishes of leadership. >> the premise of both of those is there has to be personal relationships. the ambassador pointed out well that governor romn
that race does largely become a debate about the majority in the senate, harry reid is majority leader. what happens there wr? i think that becomes really big in that race. frankly, i think that anybody else would have been a candidate that clearly would have won, and todd very well may win. he is on a ticket at a time when people are looking at a senate that's not doing its work, and the only way to change the senate is to change the majority. >> so you are going to sell it as a party race as opposed to the individual of congressman akin? >> i think it becomes a party race in our state and lots of other places as well as people look at these senate races, and i'm not -- i think they look at them to a great extent independently of whatever has happened in the presidential race, but i think the presidential race is going to be decided by the economy and the economy is not where people want it to be. >> we have a great candidate in missouri named jay nixon. he will be re-elected because he focuses on jobs. >> you are already holding that seat, though. it's the ones you might lose that are worr
majority leader harry reid, the highest ranking mormon in congress attacked the republican presidential nominee on his religion. he says he's coming to the state where there's a lot of members of the lds church and they had he is not the face of mormonism. my first naught senator reid, do you think you're the face of mormonism? i'm sure many people hope not. without being disrespectful it's not been the intent of mitt romney to bring his own faith into this presidential election other than to affirm that it's very important to him. i think the evidence is not by what he says, but what he does. when he released tax information and gives nearly 30% of his income away the biggest part to his church, i have to say i salute that. i admire people who don't just claim believe in something, but back it with what they actually do and give. and his particular faith is not the same as mine, but i'm wanting people who practice what they preach. i'd love to see people in office and frankly, people who want credibility with me to demonstrate that what they want for on sunday is also what they stand f
or unintentionally misleading and wrong. the senate majority leader harry reid fired back saying some lawmakers are just trying to score some cheap political points. catherine herridge with us live from d.c. tonight. catherine, you spoke to the republic chairman on the house republic committee how did he react. >> just a short time ago congressman mike rogers suggesting the obama administration politicized the intelligence in the immediate aftermath in the attack on the consulate in libya. spontaneous and not premeditated terrorism. >> i argue the administration made some serious mistakes when they highlighted the video, escalated its credibility to the presidential level and then took it on tv in pakistan with u.s. taxpayer dollars. >> rogers who told fox one day after the attack that it was indeed terrorism saying tonight that this statement from the director of national intelligence friday the nation's top intelligence official appeared to be an effort to object secure the facts. >> part of the problem is this circling of the wagons that is really concerning about. this again, americans need
like obama wants. >> greta: but senator harry reid won't even put a budget on the floor. >> that's right. not a democratic senator for two years has voted for an obama budget. not one. >> greta: governor, as always, nice to see you, sir. >> thank you, greta. >> greta: coming up, andrew brightbart's final film is out. it's explosive. and also governor chris christie says the presidential election will be turned upside down. what will turn it upside down? governor christie will tell you straight ahead.

be an interesting tactical question for romney does he have to sit down with harry reid or sit down with joe manchin and mark warner and eight others and the same for president obama. i think the republicans are underestimating how strong obama will be if he is reelected and i do not believe that john boehner can hold if he has a margin in the house i don't think that he can hold off the republicans against dan obama version of the deal. the believes are stronger than the used to be. i think that we have more leverage over members in the campaign finance issues and other things but i think obama going to the lamar alexander in the senate and there are some equivalence in the house, even if the democrats don't control both houses of congress he would have some leverage to go round the leadership and i suspect he wouldn't mind. he would feel that he is obliged to deal with him in 2013 if romney has lost but people see bipartisanship when it's a leadership negotiation and the other is picking off against the wishes of leadership but the premise on both of those is the rest of the personal relationship
do care very much about all the things that harry reid and obama talked about when it comes to oil and coal and the whole 9 yards. i think romney did a really fabulous job and trying to get obama to talk about that, but he did not. >> that you are the independent which both campaigns were centering on the day. have you made a decision? >> yes, definitely. >> who is going to be? >> i watched it live and then i rerun.d a refun i am even more sure now that i was before it went on live at 9:00. backs who are you going to vote for? >> romney is not going to continue to kill our economy. he is not going to continue to kill jobs. he will not continue to throw money at green jobs like solyndra and all that. obama did not answer that question either, did he? >> in about seven minutes or so we will show the debate again. you may have to go to bed by then. we invite you to go to our debate hub. you can see portions of it tailored to each section. a lot of media is looking in analyzing what was said between the two men tonight. here is a labette of the dialogue that took place tonight. -- a li
attacked obama for doing too much to allow harry reid and nancy pelosi in the health care policy. sometimes romney says obama puts his plans out too much, and other times it's too much to negotiate with congress. romney's approach here has not been to not put out specifics on his policy. it's been to not put out the hard parts. i want it to cut the budget by $7 trillion or taxes by $5 trillion, but he doesn't tell you the details. am i surprised that led to a win for him? not really. i don't think last night of a trick. romney came and was a better debater. i don't think president obama walked into that debate or none straight demonstrated a clear vision of what he tried to get mitt romney to say, what points to pin him down on. romney won the debate. last night romney was more skilled. it doesn't change the policies. >> ezra, will the strategy work in the next two debates that heavy here? will this vague strategy work with foreign policy and the next debate beyond that? >> i think that the obama team is going to be more ready for what romney's able to bring to the debate than they were in
that you and nancy pelosi and harry reid thought something was the best answer and drove it through. what we did in a legislature 87% democrat, we worked together, whisking aside the 10th amendment which gives states the rights for these kinds of things. is not the course for america to have a stronger more vibrant economy. >> romney delivered a conservative argument and criticism over the obama agenda that the right has been clamoring for. when wall street regulation came up, he made a more centrist approach, repeatedly pointing out his support for regulation while eliminating excess. >> i'd have regulation, but i wouldn't designate five banks as too big to fail and give them a blank check. that's one of the unintended consequences of dodd frank. it wasn't thought through properly. we need to get rid of it because it's killing regional and small banks. >> the romney-ryan ticket plansa agenda amounting to trickle down government, both romney and his running mate will be appearing here in virginia today. another campaign stop tomorrow and then florida through the weekend, precede ago big f
and the unemployment rate is far too high. senate majority leader harry reid said with unemployment dropping below 8% to the lowest level in four years, our economy is on the right track. joining me now is "newsweek" columnist zachary caribel. we have one more jobs report left and let's move aahead and not talk about the ground game regarding the numbers we've seen. let's talk about the numbers we haven't seen coming up. >> you have to agree with boehner's comment, this may be the only time to say that. it's too slow and too many are unemploy unemployed. that won't change in the next four weeks. the numbers were revised up the past four months so you can see a report with the numbers revised down. there's nothing in the past few months that suggests we get a november surprise, meaning a number that is going to come out the friday before the election that is going to be so dramatically up or down it will change the tenor of people going to the polls the tuesday after next job report. >> it's very likely where we are now is where we'll be? >> right. we were, in fact -- i don't think it really requires
one of the biggest disasters. neil: harry reid even questioning that, his devotion, and whether he's a good representative of mormonism. >> that's the best, one of the church leaders, and one reasons he's talking about the accomplishments with people and self-helped people and helping them through the problems through psychiatric, religious, financial, ect. -- neil: even in the late stage of the game, many people don't know the guy. >> yeah, and the reason that's so because we -- i was a bishop when i ran for the senate, doing all of the things any pastor would do, only not paid for it because it's voluntary, and, you know, you're called to the positions, and you really don't talk about those. it's difficult for him to talk about what a great human being he is. neil: he didn't have problems talking about a few more details in the tax plan, senator, and among the things advocated, other than the 20% cut in taxes across the board for everyone, he built in a few more dots saying he'd limit deductions. put a $70,000 figure on that. a lot of folks heard that and said, even with the tax
